If you ask me the work of Shintaro Kago follows an identical pattern; somewhat stylish yet profoundly revolting artwork combined with surreal plotlines and bland characters.
If you for some reason liked Abstraction (from Kasutoro Shiki), then make sure to check out Fetus Collection (from Kijin Gahou), or vice versa. They're both utterly tasteless stories with impossibly crude characters and explicit depictions of love and sex.
Genesis (from Kasutoro Shiki) and Fetus Collection (from Kijin Gahou) are Shintaro Kago manga for people who find things like religion and the abortion morality debate laughable, and appreciate the bizarre and grotesque.
Mika is a man in love. The lucky girl is named is Fabian; she has pointed, protruding lips and big, round eyes, and Mika's friend Darin can't wait to meet her. However, there's a catch...
These two one shots have absolutely nothing in common, but I'm recommending them together because they both are COMPLETELY bizarre to the point of being totally laughable. If you want a bizarre ride, check out these titles.
Every morning a man wakes up, gets dressed, and heads to work, returning home in the evening to go to sleep. Feeling suffocated by the mundanity and repetitiveness of life, the man takes a detour on his way to work one day. But after being swept up in a tide of piracy, cannibalism, and bizarre religious sects the man starts to wonder: was his boring old life so bad after all?
Journey to the End of the World is longer and more dynamic than Fetus Collection (from Kijin Gahou), but both showcase a permeating no holds barred oddness. Do they mean anything? Are they just weird for the sake of being weird? Your mileage may vary (and I hold JttEotW in much higher regard), but a fan of one will probably find something to enjoy in the other.
The Suzuki family runs a zoo with a difference – they themselves are the animals! With father elephant trying to maintain order by squirting everyone with water and mother giraffe attempting to keep the peace, poor decrepit old grandpa is relegated to a small hut and acts as the toilet. One day however, their family dynamic is set to change when the true nature of living by the laws of the jungle rears its ugly head…
Welcome to the world of messed up one shot manga. Both The Family Zoo and Holy Night are bizarre shorts with a strong sexual theme that really make you wonder what the hell the mangakas were smoking when they drew these.
Fujio and Mitsuo are two would-be wrestlers who spend their days practicing moves near Dark Fuji, a man-made garbage mountain where bodies are buried alongside industrial waste. Unfortunately, years of contamination lead to zombies rising from the pile, and as Tokyo quickly becomes overrun by the horde, Fujio and Mitsuo are separated. As society falls, will the duo ever see each other again?
Tokyo Zombie and Fetus Collection (from Kijin Gahou) are structured very similarly: both take a gory/taboo subject and run with it, until they end up with as bizarre and irreverent a story as possible. Both feature very strange competitions and oodles of shock value.
